Hi there, goodmorning! This blogpost is scheduled – I type this on Sunday – ’cause after a long day of work I don’t feel like crawling behind the computer in the evening, and on Wednesday morning I have to start early again. My job is three days a week and Wednesday is a working day for me, but when I come home later today, the working week will be over and my ‘weekend’ will start.
So, on to the stuff that was on my desk last weekend. It had been ages, but I played with my gelli plates! Yes, plural, because besides my old plate I bought another one. A big gelli plate (12″x 14″ – 30,48 x 35,56 cm) with which I played on Sunday. I only thought of taking a picture of my desk AFTER I cleaned my desk though… you always say you are jealous off my neat desk but being neat is also a handicap sometimes. I’d have loved to show you the mess I am capable of making! The only thing that’s left of my ‘gelliplate-session’ are the prints that lay on the floor to dry. Well, that’s my ‘desk’ to show for today then…
I hope to use these prints in my Chronicles art journal because that’s why I bought this big gelli plate in the first place. At the beginning of this year I bound me another Chronicles journal and I decided to go for a big size. My 2022 journal is 7.87″ x 12.8″ (20 x 32,5 cm) and my old gelli plate is a lot smaller, which means I couldn’t use my prints as a background. I still need two prints now to fill a spread, but that’s always better than four! I think I’ll pick the one second from left on the top with the one beneath that (the ‘yellowish/brownish) to make my next spread – that combination might work don’t you think? That’ll be a spread highlighting week 22 then, which means I have some spreads from the weeks before that to show.
Chronicles 2022 – Week 18
Chronicles 2022 – Week 19
Chronicles 2022 – Week 20
Chronicles 2022 – Week 21
I’ll be working on that new spread for week 22 later. I hope YOU have time to plan some creative time too this week. I’ll be around to see what you are up to, so if you leave me a comment I’ll visit you back. See you!
